On My Second Screwdriver


I’m talking to the hummingbirds again
How can you not talk to the hummingbirds?
Here they are, in stupefying abundance
taking maniacal advantage of your offering
but unaware of you
who provides it
Of course you want to connect with them
to talk about life, about things
How they feel about climate change
but it’s no use
They’re hummingbirds
and you’re you
They obey their biological imperatives
without a thought
and you think too much

About believesteve

I am a photographer and have published a book of photography and accompanying text on running the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. The first (print) edition is out of print, but a second edition is available as an iBook (eBook) through the iTunes bookstore. All Grand Canyon, river and nature lovers will enjoy my book: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-grand/id672492447?ls=1
